Two Kinds of Happiness


There are two kinds of happiness - the temporary pleasure derived primarily from material comfort alone and another more enduring comfort that results from the thorough transformation and development of the mind. We can see in our own lives that the latter form of happiness is superior because when our mental state is calm and happy, we can easily put up with minor pains and physical discomforts. On the other hand, when our mind is restless and upset, the most comfortable physical facilities do not make us happy.

The bigger happiness is the one we work hard to attain and is more satisfying in the end.

That's why I always prefer the latter. I can put up with anything as long as I have peace of mind.

I definitely agree. May I add a passage from the Bible that says "don't look at temporal things but set your eyes on eternal things. Temporal things fades but eternal things lasts." Following this principle, one will attain genuine happiness.

What do you actually feel about this quote then, ma'am? I happen to think there's only one kind of happiness :)
I wish everyone happiness inside and out! You see, when we are grateful for even the littlest thing - we'd be happy!:)

For me, Happiness is part of our life, a cycle either we are happy of sad. Be thankful for what we have.

The more enduring kind of happiness is what we should seek in this world.

This is really true. It is really difficult to find your true happiness.

Actually there are 31 TYPES OF HAPPINESS but to sum it all it breaks into two, the EGO'S HAPPINESS and TRUE HAPPINESS.

This is true. Everything we experience are the sense of AWE and WONDER from past to present. From real life to a so-called a make believe LIFE.

Of course, I will go for the second type of happiness because it is long lasting.

some settle being happy temporarily but somehow deep inside they long for that true happiness.

Happiness derived from getting the material things and happiness derived from achieving inner peace. The former is temporary and the latter is permanent.

Kanser 2018, the latest take on Noli Me Tangere.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play. Gantimpala Theater Foundation made it as their own biggest production for so many years, it keep changing and upgrading in many aspects, from color feel, to music ambiance and of course the magnificent cast that is challenge to portray iconic characters onstage. Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

Guadalupe The Musical, our miracle in Theater.

With the biggest Jackpot now in Ultra Lotto, everybody is asking for miracle, that they can have the winning number combination, that they win the jackpot and change their lives forever. Just like this musical Guadalupe, it answers a question that we need miracle, for us to have strong faith and earn the living that we want.

Guadalupe The Musical, Julie Borromeo’s Performing Arts Foundation, Inc current theater offering will help you realize that, there are miracles in life that we forgot to acknowledge, this are little miracles that we encounter in our daily lives, that instead of saying thank you, we ignore it because we aspire to be bigger, but this play made me realize a common cliché, sometimes dreams happen for those who are deserving to make it a reality, and that person don’t ask for that.
It is a superb musical to watch out for, even for non-Catholic it is worth a try due to its entertainment value, from the lighting design by John Batalla, the beautiful costumes, the wonde…
